So Much Care in One Place

Our Memory Lane neighborhood has been designed to meet the particular needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, including spacious and secure courtyards with walking paths. We also add the nationally respected “Landmarks for Living” and “Music & Memory” programs to the mix.

Thanks to “It’s Never 2 Late,” (iN2L), a computer-based program that provides unique, meaningful experiences to stay connected, our 24/7 skilled nursing (and memory support) staffs have more time to provide the personal care that’s so essential to staying active, engaged and flourishing.

Our short-term Rehab and Therapy Center, which is administered seven days a week, employs the latest methods to help your loved one rebuild strength and regain mobility.

You’ve earned this life, one with comfort in every moment and without worry for the future. A life like this shouldn’t feel like a far-off fantasy. It’s just around the corner, and it’s at Bethesda Southgate.
I can’t say enough about the communication I get from the Leadership Team at Bethesda Southgate. Once a week emails are sent to residents’ family members to let us know how things are going. I know that the #1 job of the staff is to care for the resident, but #2 is probably taking care of the family members, and they do a remarkable job of that. I cannot thank them enough.
